Three wins on turf (6f-1m), the latest coming when just doing enough at Redcar (1m Class 6, good to firm; 8-1) last May; lacks much in the way of AW experience (0-2), and could potentially need this off the back of a 179-day absence; stablemate of Shotley Royale.

Course winner (7f, good) who ran well on fast and soft ground after reappearing in April and returned to winning form at Redcar (1m, good to firm) the following month; now 4lb lower, but poor efforts on his last two starts raise doubts as to whether he can take advantage.

Verdict

Tim Easterby looks to have a strong hand with WAR DEFENDER and Motarajel. The selection has dropped to a very good mark and he went down fighting under a positive ride at Doncaster last time. Makalu can also have a say.[Alistair Jones]
